Hey J--I know you don't care too much for CREAM, and hope you took my cracks in good humor...but, I must ask this: doesn't JHend with voodoo child absolutely send chills up your spine? I almost wouldn't consider you human if that weren't the case...

Apologies for leaping in uninvited, and for potentially being trite and cliched to boot, but wasn't Hendrix's Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock the ne plus ultra of his musical achievements?

Some sez...did just happen to watch it, and though inspiring, VC still does it moreso for me...would put it to him for either, though--good choice!

For me, Little Wing sends the most shivers up my spine. Sure he could go ballistic and let loose with a torrent of notes, but when he wanted to he could slow it down and just let if flow. Gotta respect those few who can (or could) do it so well.

Have to say my favourite version of Little Wing was always the one on the Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert album. I guess we're kind of going in circles here...

Little Wing was the highlight of the show for me when EC had Derek Trucks with him 2 years or so ago (last night of that tour with Derek).

yeah because Cassady is on bass :)

j/k of course it's a great song. Not my favorite Hendrix song. I like some Hendrix and will certainly say I get why he's probably THE greatest, I just don't find myself listening that much especially his live stuff. There's just something missing in the rhythm section for me. I like ensemble playing better than solo's maybe is what it is
